The cooler and dryer weather we enjoyed over the weekend seems like a dream now. The high tomorrow is predicted to be 99 with a heat index even higher. We've had almost no rain in weeks and none is predicted before the weekend.
But the bees, butterflies, and zinnias don't seem to mind the heat - in fact, they love it.
The heat is almost too much for the rest of us, though.
Heat, ma'am! it was so dreadful here, that I found there was nothing left for it but to take off my flesh and sit in my bones. ~Sydney Smith, Lady Holland's Memoir
